Here are some more of my inherited things.
Small box in tin. My father used to keep his cufflinks in it. The single pair he owned, also in tin, is still in there… the letter O, for Oskar, engraved onto them.
When I was a child I was very fascinated by the box as you could see the face of the man looking down if you turned the lid over.
I love this crystal vase with the etched image of a woman with child.
It was done by a known glass designer called Kjellander. His objects are nowadays found in various auctions around the world and are, as I understand it, collectors items.
The bottom of the vase.
Here are my two dalecarlian horses in wood. Got them as a child. They too have become collectors items. Still made today, but it is the older ones, like these, that certain people collect. No, I am not selling ;).
Another collectors item is this green vase with a dragon, made by Kåge (Wilhelm Kåge, Sweden, 1889–1960) for Gustavsberg in the Argenta series. The dragon is inlaid in silver.
A more recent collectors item are the ceramics designed by Lisa Larson (who is very popular in Japan). I have this bulldog. She is still active doing new things. My bulldog is from the series “Stora Zoo” from 1958 where the bulldog was added later and only produced between 1960-1968. I don’t know which year my bulldog was done, or when it entered my childhood home.
Then there is this crystal vase. Small and has some un-readable sign at the bottom. Love it though, Especially when the light shines through it.
